Sometimes you have one of those days, when you can’t stand your oven. The way it looks at you, thinking things like, what are you going to make tonight, I bet you its not going to taste good, why don’t you stand in front of me so I can make you so hot you feel like melting. That’s just some of the things its tauntingly tells you. On those days its best to just say no to your oven and eat raw.
That doesn’t mean you feel like eating a boring old lettuce salad. That’s how this recipe was created, I felt like something filling, but yet completely flavourful, I could have used actually rice, but cauliflower rice just bursts with flavour and makes this recipe something special.
Filled with Mediterranean flavours, this is a great main course or side salad for any occasion.
